Modern Sporting Rifle is what Walmart calls their rifles built on the AR platform. The first place I ever saw the phrase modern sporting rifle was Walmart. Walmart sells more AR-15's than anyone. They aren't doing it on price either.
LGS have their home built rifles cheaper than Walmart. But they are just that, cheap. They have the cheapest everything, even sights. People are buying from Walmart because the LGS is overpriced on most items. People don't bother to call for a price. Not to mention the bull manure the LGS tries to feed everyone. They sell Surefire flashlights for $120. Everyone knows you can get the exact same light on Ebay for $30 with another name. The $30 light has a cree bulb, aluminum housing, rubber gaskets and five position clickity click switch. Yet the LGS will tell you the Surefire is a superior light.
"I do not aim with my hand; I aim with my eye. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
